      HARLEY AND ME

      Who does not love an Harley?

      My love for HD started after watching Arnold in Terminator. I even took a photograph sitting on a replica of that bike which Arnie rode, when i visited Universal studios way back in 2005.

      When HD came to india i was so thrilled of the possibility of owning one. But the prices were a big disappointment. When HD announced the street 750 i started to think that my dream of owning an harley might come true after all. Even though i could afford this bike, started to think otherwise, which i have been doing a lot after i got married.

      So i went ahead and booked an Indian Harley ( RE classid 500 ) and was satisfied. One day when i called my friend wh is also a shippy, i found out that he bought an IRON 883 recently. So i was drooling over that pics and telling to my wife about that bike. Suddenly my wife says '' why dont you get an HD?. I see a Lot of RE in tuty and your bike will not look different.''. I was like ' Really?. She said you are the one who is going to pay.

      So called immidiately and cancelled the booking for the RE. And started dreaming about a HD.

      Read some reviews, read autonut 's ownership experience, went ahead and booked a street 750 without even taking a test ride..

      I am on ship all this while and everyday i would dream about riding the bike and i would be yapping to my wife and collegues about the bike..

      Initially i was told that the waiting period would be 3 months and i would be geting the bike aroung end september. I signed off from ship in mid september and found out that the bike is ready.
      Loan process with HDFC went pretty smooth and i got the loan sanctioned in 2 days.

      then the wait started for the schools holidays, so that i can come to chennai to take delivery of the bike.

      Took delivery of the bike on 1st october. The bike was delivered around 5pm. And wifey came along with me for the delivery.

      Went for a ride in the ECR. Went to our chennai GH normal meeting spot A2B Mahabalipuram and came Back. Throughout the whole ride there was big grin on my face and i was finally at peace.. Awesome is the one word i have for this purchase. More detailed review and pictures coming. I have no time as i am not getting my ass of the bike as of now..
